Default new camera

so im looking for a new video camera. sadly i have come to realize that the one i have now sucks. and i want a high quality camera to enhance my videos
so for all you camera guys out there please help me
heres what i need

to import to a macbook pro easily preferably via firewire (i have heard mini DV camcorders are best at this)

a decent form of HD recording like 1280 by 1080 (i think?)

to import in a format thats good to edit with final cut express

long battery life in the cold

good settings for night time shooting

and is there such thing as HD mini DV tapes or can you record HD footage on normal mini DV tapes


my budget is around $1000 Im only 16 but i just got a job so i should be able to save up to at least that pretty soon


I know there is probably a better forum to ask this on so if anyone knows one i will ask on there too
thanks in advance for all your help
